Paper presented at the IEEE Region 10 Humanitarian Technology Conference, R10-HTC 2015 - Co-Located with 8th International Conference on Humanoid, Nanotechnology, Information Technology, Communication and Control, Environment and Management, HNICEM 2015, doi:10.1109/R10-HTC.2015.7391868
This paper highlights an approach to combat the ramifications of both natural and man-made catastrophe in perspective of Bangladesh, a country highly susceptible to disasters. The aim of the paper is to develop a 'Rescue Robot' that inherits cognitive framework for life detection through rubble. Bangladesh is a developing country, and the purpose of the project is to construct the country's very own rescue machine that can crawl through debris of earthquake and landslides and maintain signal strength using boosters at minimum cost. The robot also has an audio/video monitoring ability with the aid of a digital camera with an adjacent LED torch. The motion of the vehicle is remotely controlled and communication is done through the use of Wi-Fi beacons. This robot can provide a simpler, more reliable and cheaper way to traverse in all types of terrain and locate victims using carbon dioxide sensor.
